Pitchers and Catchers: A Cubs Parody Song

BCB's Danny Rockett reworks Weezer's "Sweater Song" in celebration of the start of Cubs Spring Training!

Cubs Fans Enjoying the "W"

We made it! The long, cold, soul-sucking, miserable Chicago winter is over! And the most beautiful words in the English language have finally been uttered… "Pitchers and Catchers report today!"

In honor of the official start of the 2016 Cubs baseball season, I've parodied Weezer's "Sweater Song" and made a video featuring my favorite photos from last Spring Training, just before start of the magical 2015 season. I've posted the lyrics below the video along with a link to download the song. Sing along!

And you can stream/download/buy the track along with the rest of the 2016 Cubs Canon here!

Pitchers and Catchers (Sweater Song Parody)


Guy: Hey Danny, how was your winter man?

Danny: It sucked.

Guy: How bout them Cubs? What an off season, freakin' Theo man!

Danny: Yeah, totally

Guy: Aw man, you want a beer?

Danny: All right.

Guy: This season’s gonna be the best! With Heyward, and Zobrist, and Lackey! Plus last years dudes! We can’t lose!

Danny: That’s what they’re saying!

Guy: Aw man, it's gonna be the best, I'm so stoked! Take it easy bra'.


I need

Palm trees

Cub fans

The sand

Oh damn

I am

Freaking

Freezing


It is time for pitchers and catchers

We’re so close to opening day!


Woman: Hey, what's up?

Danny: Not much.

Woman: Do you think they’ll trade Soler?

Danny: I dunno

Woman: Um, I think they’ll probably get a pitcher for him, but maybe wait till the trade deadline.


Hello

Rizzo

I’m gone

Bye-bye (bye)

Could Buy

A Flight

Too Much

Gonna drive


It is time for pitchers and catchers

We’re so close to opening day (To opening day)

In Arizona watching Cubs baseball

Drinking lots of beer  (Drinking lots of beer)

Out in the sun!

It is time for pitchers and catchers
